Rag Blog writers Bruce Melton and Roger Baker discuss developments in climate science, including the current record-setting heat wave and drought, in the context of increasing global warming caused by man-made climate change. And they talk about the potential confluence of global crises -- including climate change, peak oil, population growth, and the widespread destruction of ecosystems -- that could lead to major global disasters including famine and hunger wars. Bruce and Roger are... Topics: Rag Radio, Bruce Melton, Roger Baker, Climate Change, Global Warming, Environment, The Rag Blog
